35 million families will lose child tax credit payments in three weeks, Americans ask for $2,000 stimulus check

Americans have banded together to call on Congress to send a $2,000 stimulus check after Thanksgiving.

The final child tax credit payment will be sent on December 15, and after that, families will have to wait until tax season to claim the rest.

Congress must also decide whether to expand the current child tax credit program. If not extended, the December payment will be the last.

Americans have expressed frustration to President Joe Biden on Twitter in recent weeks as Thanksgiving 2021 has become the most expensive in recent memory.

Many are asking for a surprise incentive check after the holidays, while others are asking for recurring payments for the remainder of the pandemic worth up to $2,000.

The cost of Thanksgiving dinner is up 14% from last year.

Many say it’s due to inflation, but some believe it’s because Thanksgiving last year was cheaper with smaller gatherings or skipped it altogether.

Last year, dinner costs were 4% lower than the year before.

Child tax credit payments could expire in as little as three weeks after millions of families receive economic relief in 2021.

Democrats want to expand it again, but Republicans are against it.

There is no reason to believe that lawmakers or President Biden intend to provide any kind of economic aid despite people’s asking for it.
